Die Rote Armee / The Red Army Part 1 and Part 2

Post by Hans1906 » 13 Sep 2021 12:44

New docu on Arte, Online until 13.12.2021

Part 1 Großer Vaterländischer Krieg https://www.arte.tv/de/videos/089068-00 ... armee-1-2/

In 1918, Leon Trotsky founded the Red Army. After the victory over Nazism, the glory of the Red Army was initially over. This two-part documentary deconstructs in an epic narrative - fed by excerpts from letters and diaries of high-ranking officers and anonymous individuals - the perpetuated myth of an army crowned with glory, touching on nearly a century of military defeats, summary executions, purges and abuses of troops.

P.S. Both episodes are first class, in excellent picture quality, both parts are recommended for viewers over 16 years of age only.

P.S.S. It is always amazing, that all these documentaries are simply consumed without a single comment.
If you are uncomfortable with all these films, please let me know, thank you.
Es ist im Leben wichtig, viel zu wissen.
Manchmal ist es noch wichtiger, zu wissen, daß man nichts weiß.
